"Florence Nightingale based her statistical methods upon this book by Quetelet, which appeared 20 years before her statistical surveys. The author presented to her the second augmented edition in 1869. She called him 'the founder of the most important science in the world.' She meant to dedicate to Quetelet an essay on the application of his discoveries, 'to explain the Plan of God in teaching us by these results the laws by which our Moral Progress is to be attained.'"--Elmer Belt Florence Nightingale collection (1958), p. 17
